PARTITIONS   Partitions is a set of screen prototypes woven on a 24 harness AVL dobby loom.  The screens would be used in the home as a way to denote theatrical space within domestic space –– staging within the home / everyday.  Each piece plays with privacy vs. show, and reacts to changes in light, sound, and time of day.   Pieces 1 and 2 and 4 use layering, warp printing, and material shifts to create pieces that transform depending on the light. With direct daylight, the pieces may appear one color, texture, or material, but when the light hits in a different direction, or is coming from behind, they transform. Piece 3 uses a rippled structure with ties woven into the back that can be cinched or stretched to let in more or less light.      Partition # 1  Dobby Woven, 2016.  24" x 24". Wool, linen, metallic, cotton.
